continued In addition, the district’s website lists resources for parents and families, including websites for Vera House and the National Association of School Psychologists on dealing with grief and death at school.
Bresnahan also left a legacy at Syracuse University’s School of Information Studies, where she received her master’s of library science in 1992.
“For those of you who knew Lori as a student, classmate, colleague, internship supervisor, and/or friend, you may remember her contagious smile, engaging personality and her strong commitment to her chosen profession,” said Dr. Ruth Small of the iSchool in a message on its website.
The school is working to establish a scholarship in Bresnahan’s name. They are also setting up a book drive for the LCSD in her memory. Both are in their initial planning stages, according to Blythe Bennett, program manager in the library and information science/school media department at the iSchool.
